The Camper Tiny House, by Build Tiny, can be used as a full-time home for dedicated downsizers, but is also well-suited as a vacation home or guest house. The compact and lightweight dwelling can sleep up to four people thanks to a neat bed that pulls down from the ceiling.

The Camper Tiny House is based on a double-axle trailer and measures just 5-m (16 ft)-long, while its weight comes in at 2,838 kg (6,256 lb), which is definitely on the lighter side for a tiny house - even those lightweight French models weigh more. This, plus its maximum height of just 3.5 m (11.4 ft), should make the dwelling relatively easy to tow. It has a steel frame and Colorsteel cladding.

Visitors enter the home via glazed double doors into the kitchen area. This has a mini-fridge, sink, oven, two-burner propane-powered stove, microwave, and quite a bit of cabinetry, given its size.

Nearby is the living/sleeping area, which has a sofa bed, plus another bed above, near the ceiling. This is an elevating-style bed on rails with an integrated counterweight system, so the owner simply pulls it down into position when ready to go to sleep.

Additionally, when there are guests over, the sofa bed can be used and the retractable bed placed above for a bunk bed-like setup. A small table is also stowed away under the sofa.

Over on the opposite side of the kitchen is the bathroom, which is accessed by pocket sliding door. This is compact but has a composting toilet, a shower and a small sink. There's a small loft space above the bathroom that's suitable for storage too.

The Camper Tiny House cost NZD 92,990 (roughly US$62,000), excluding appliances, but including the novel bed, which increased the price considerably.

$92k? That's a little high for something so small. $60k and I'd buy it.
